tetsuooooooooooo!

Tetsuo
Dammit, you guys started without me!

Stopheles
It still holds up, even though the movie is like a tenth of the story from the comic series.
Keefu
TEETSSUOOOOOOO, etc.

Kanedaaaaaaaaa!

oswaldtheluckyrabbit
This is probably one of the best films ever made. And I hate, hate, HATE anime.
kingarthur
Comment completely echoed.

Stopheles
Have you seen GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES? That one stands up to the best live-action dramas, in my mind.

Harveyjames
By anime do you mean 'all animation from Japan'

Argh people use the word 'anime' in such a retarded way, I want to ban that fucking word

ZawBanjito
Why? Anime = all animation from Japan. It's the definition of the word. In fact, to the Japanese, anime = all animation from everywhere.

mouser
Meh. Just go rent it or buy it. This RIP is like watching a movie on an iPod. Bleh. If you really think this is a good movie, you can't possibly thing watching it this size is worth it.

The new dub for Akira is shit. Sure, they improved the translations, but it's not the same without the voices from the original dub.

Aside from Speed Racer and so on, this is the first real japanese animation I sat down and watched. I still get chills at the title crawl...

31 YEARS AFTER WORLD WAR III

Not to go comic-book guy on anyone but the comic's opening was just as chilling: every major city in the world bought a nuke that day..."One by one the great cities fell...Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Rome, New York, Washington, Leningrad, Moscow, ... "(etc.)

Anyway this is really one of my favorite movies of all time. I have it on DVD, Laserdisk (criterion collection) and I used to own it on VHS. Ahem. Sorry.
Caminante Nocturno
This is where it started for me.
Jimmy Labatt
Same here.

I remember watching Siskel & Ebert review its North American theatrical release on their show and I knew I just had to see it. Glad I did.

-2 stars for turning Caminate into the king of the faggots.

EvilHomer
I'd give it a +2 for the same reason. But Caminante... if AKIRA is what started it for you, where did you go wrong? What made you go from homicidal motorcycle nerds, giant fucking teddy bears with milk-spewing snake arms, and That Explosion, to Card Captor Sakura?

Caminante Nocturno
I guess my tastes just matured over time.

EvilHomer
Touchť.

Aubrey McFate
I love this movie, even if the comic is 10 times better. The new dub is a great improvement, too.

I donít even consider Akira to be an anime, itís really in a league of itís own

Renting this when I was like 13 was when I realized they made cartoons in Japan. And they fucking kicked the all-living shit out of nearly anything else I'd ever seen on TV except Giant Robot cartoons, and maybe COPS.

Also, I'd say Walker got turned down the path of evil, deception, cute underage girls/underage girl-looking-anime-catpeople, and sailor suits in exactly the same way a whole twentieth of the generation did: waking up at four in the morning because other cartoons officially suck.

We all should have known better and stayed away from Dominion: Tank Police and All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku and watched more The Irresponsible Captain Tylor and Area 88.
Mike Tyson?!
I know you didn't just diss Dominion: Tank Police.
EvilHomer
Yeah, what the hell? Cat Girl Whatever can suck my balls, but Dominion Tank Police was the shit back in the day. "Alea Hachi-juu Hachi" was pretty fun and I've got nothing against the good Captain, but unless my memory is completely shot, Tank Police was quality stuff too.

What else would I vote this?
Azmo23
buy it. buy it now.

-2 stars for being the old dub.

+8 million stars for Cam Clarke as Kaneda.
Shion
Oh yes. That fantastic bit of score, "Doll's Polyphony," still puts my hair on end.
Princess v2.1
The new dub sucks. The acting is completely emotionless and everything's paraphrased. The movie is much better than the comic (which is great)
TheDevilsDictionary
Never liked the new dub. Yet, 5 stars!

There ain't nuthin' wrong with helping a buddy out.
rustedmutt
This is the exact same horrible dub I bought on overpriced VHS years and years ago.

Ahhh, memories.
